Joe,

Looks like a good camera for the price. Where did you find the firmware upgrade to loop the recording?

I've tried to quieten the wind noise by sealing the mic port with silicon, it made no difference, any other ideas l'm open to without breaking it open. l suspect that the only real fault with this camera is it's ability to cancel out wind noise through the sound card. Still really can't complain for the money.

I've done the same with some run of the mill cellotape again to no avail, so I think it will have to be opened up unless some sort of wind shield could be built around it?

Anyway my camera is being a pain in the arse every time I go over the slightest bump it stops recoding!!!! Haven't used it for a good few weeks now really need to get it charged up again.

My PC won't show the cam when plugged in and turned on. This started to happen last night.
I have to take the card out and put it in to the PC to be able to view files etc.

Weird.....

Anyone with the newer version had any luck changing the timing? Can't seem to get it to work as the instructions are balls :D

It's only got a little compressor mic held in place by a plastic clip.

If you take the front bit off the cam you can move it away from the hole slightly as it's attached to the circuit board by a couple of wires.

I took the front off and moved it to the chamber where the battery lives, but that killed the sound.
I then put some electrical tape over the mic and put it back in it housing, same affect.
I have yet to test my next trial - electrical tape over the mic hole and tape over the hole of the plastic mic housing. I'll let you know the outcome
